Small World Spotlight: Conscious Consumerism with abillion

We’re thrilled to have innovative business partners who are paving or rather, planting their way to a sustainable future. One of our partners, abillion, has gone the extra mile by utilizing technology and data for good by offering an app platform where users can discover sustainable food, beauty, and fashion anywhere they are. The best part? Users can earn credits through reviews, allowing them to support over 60 impactful causes, including One Tree Planted! 

We had a chance to chat with abillion’s Founder and CEO, Vikas Garg, on connecting consumers with countless vegan and plant-based food options and cruelty-free products.

What was the lightbulb moment that led to creating abillion?

The lightbulb moment when our founder Vikas put it all on the line to start abillion was in the aftermath of the 2016 US Presidential election. It was a watershed moment that revealed the extent that social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter were being mobilized against people, and Vikas started to ask whether it was possible to design algorithms and data to turn people into “daily active users” for doing good for the world.

What is abillion’s mission and vision?

Our mission and vision is to build a world where a billion people are vegan. Achieving this would solve our generation’s biggest sustainability challenges.

How does working with One Tree Planted help you reach your sustainability goals?

When someone chooses a vegan option, whether that’s a dish at a restaurant, a pair of sneakers, or their next skincare product, they’re voting with their money for a more sustainable planet. And when they share that moment on abillion, they help countless people also build on those experiences, and they help businesses do better. As a reward, they receive the ability to decide where abillion donates. The company has donated nearly US $3 million and is proud to partner with organizations like One Tree Planted, to help people make the connection that a simple action like what you eat for lunch can become an action for the planet on the other side of the world.
